Synopsis: May Day on the Green is an archival documentary about a peaceful protest, referred to as the May Day Rally, in May of 1970. May Day featured 15,000 people in support of Black Panther Party members on trial for murder charges, over 7,000 armed forces, and a large media team ready to cover the violence expected to erupt. May Day on the Green as a film focuses on the protest, but more importantly, breaks down the backstory of the trial. The ultimate goal of May Day on the Green is to show how this story is a significant piece of history that is unknown to the average American.
